7/30/2010 – GBP/USD – Price action on GBP/USD (a daily chart of which is shown) as of Friday (7/30/2010) has consolidated above 1.5500, a prior resistance region that was broken to the upside earlier in the week.
This occurs within the context of a strong accelerated uptrend extending originally from the 1.4230 area lows in May, and after price just hit a fresh 5-month high on Thursday. The past week for this currency pair has been decidedly bullish. The pair may now be somewhat overbought, and a bearish correction within the current uptrend may soon be due.
However, the momentum bias is still to the upside, with the 1.5800 price region serving as a key upside resistance target within the strong current uptrend. Downside support now resides around the noted 1.5500 prior resistance region.
